Over the past several months we’ve been exploring adding our own line of completely open source IP cameras (everything from the boot loader to the backend services). We’ve decided on the specifications for the hardware, which is below. In the next several weeks we plan to launch a Kickstarter project aimed at providing funding for these cameras. This will cover the development cost and once funded we will release all of the source code from the kernel to the services open source.
If you are interested please start talking with friends and letting them know what we have planned. Not all Kickstarter projects make it, but we are hoping to set the minimal funding amount low enough that with some work, we can make the goal. If you aren’t familiar with Kickstarter you can ‘pledge’ any amount (starting at a dollar) and you will only be billed if the project is fully funded.
